I won the third challenge. Yippee! Thanks to all of you who voted for me. I was attending a sewing expo yesterday and was checking my emails between classes when I got the news. It made a good day even better, and then I won a door prize later in the day. The challenge prize was a Designer Button Assortment, which will be much appreciated. Last week, when I ran out to buy buttons for my challenge jacket, I was shocked at the meager selection in the store and cost of ones that were available . The buttons I really wanted came 2 to a card and were $6.00 per card. Total cost would have been $30. Too much for a casual jacket so I found an acceptable lower cost alternative. What in the world is driving up the cost of buttons? I can't believe it is direct material or shipping cost.
This week's challenge is a Little Black Dress and I have got to get moving on it.
